Maritime Intestinal Research Alliance

The Maritime Intestinal Research Alliance (MIRA) is a centre of excellence in Gastroenterology (GI) research. Located at IWK Health, we work in partnership with Dalhousie University as the only tertiary children’s hospital serving the Maritime Provinces, and the sole referral centre for pediatric inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) for these three provinces. 

We accept new referrals from family physicians, pediatricians, or nurse practitioners for patients less than 16 years old.
